Legislative Memo on Hospital Transparency

No one should be turned away from a hospital when they need health care. A.733- A/S.1003-A will help ensure that people are aware of whether they can obtain care – particularly types of care that are often time-sensitive and stigmatized, like gender-affirming care, miscarriage management, abortion, treatment of ectopic pregnancies, and end-of-life care – at their local hospital before they are in an emergency situation, and it will lay the groundwork to eliminate care deserts in the state. Because access to this information is crucial and can often be lifesaving, the NYCLU urges the legislature to expeditiously pass this legisslation.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
